Coastal Georgia is experiencing a foster care crisis due to limited number of foster homes to meet the need of our area. Also, over 50% of foster families will quit after the first placement largely due to isolation and lack of support. This is the Church’s responsibility. God has called His Church to take care of the widows and orphans so we are taking action. Our goal is to double the amount of foster homes in our region and to support each foster home with a care team. A care team is a group who acts as an extended family for a foster family – providing meals, childcare, mentoring, and family support.
Caring for foster children and foster families can feel overwhelming to get started. These informational meetings will help you understand the process and requirements – whether you’re interested in volunteering on the prayer team, starting or joining a Care Team, or becoming a foster or adoptive parent. The meeting will include a panel of foster parents and care team volunteers and include next steps for everyone – no matter your passion.
